INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ENSEMBLE at Miller Theater (June 6, 6 p.m.). A free pop-up concert explores the animal-like behaviors of instruments, through music for solo and duo forces. There’s the premiere of Dai Fujikura’s “White Rainbow” for Indian harmonium, as well as scores by Drew Baker, Mikel Kuehn, Ann Cleare, Suzanne Farrin and Alex Mincek.

LOCRIAN CHAMBER PLAYERS at Riverside Church (June 2, 8 p.m.). This ensemble, one of the city’s best-kept musical secrets, gives infrequent performances of contemporary solo and chamber music in the tower of Riverside Church, free, and played to a very high standard. On the bill is music by George Crumb, Michael Gordon, Toshio Hosokawa and Brian Fennelly, with premieres from Carlton Wilkinson and David Macdonald.
